I can't speak for anyone else, but I would not stay in a career that caused me to be depressed!
Depression is not normal for any chosen career. If you are truly depressed, then please seek some help or chose to study something that doesn't depress you. A lifetime is way too long to live with depression!

Being good at something doesn't mean that it's a good choice for a career. Even if you score well, you should seriously question your choice of study if you find yourself feeling depressed most of the time. You might also want to consult a professional to help you determine whether it's computer science that gets you down, or something completely unrelated. This is important for you to address quickly and decisively; depression is a serious illness, often entirely treatable, that can destroy lives if allowed to run unchecked.
I, for instance, am extremely good with numbers, and would do - have done - very well in Accounting functions. But I hate accounting, and wouldn't consider a career in that field. But it wouldn't make me depressed, either. I'd just find something about it to enjoy until I could find another position. I doubt very much that it's just computer science that's making you depressed...
